Dive into a Toppling Goliath Tsunami Pale Ale. Waves of mandarin orange aroma swell into this light ale body, coasting to a smooth, easy finish. This Tsunami is a breezy ride, not too bitter, and a perfect introduction for those not yet familiar with the craft brewing world. Prepare your palate to take the plunge with a chilled Tsunami Pale, best served in a pint glass.

A weird pale. The mouthfeel is a little off. Not very bitter. Lots of mango and some citrus. Bready.

The look of this beer is really nice. Hazy orange with a solid full head. Smell and taste didn't appeal to me. Light smell with citrus scent flavor was same but ended with a bit of a metalic flavor that held on too long. Good carbonation that was would have melded with the taste better had the aftertaste not been there.
